03M, THE TOLL-KEEPEB. of Early Days On tha Coast of Maine. 1'atc That Overtook aaiAvarlclous Old Scoundrel—An Old .TVoroan's Carscand It» Strange Fulfillment—How tho Bridge Eecatno Free. 11 you have ever cruised among th perplexing 1 reaches and inlets that entangle the coast of Maine, perhaps yo liave seen "Tim's Bridge," a queer do formed little fabric of blockaded log spanning 1 an arm of the sea, locally .known as Clam river. Worn and weak ened by the service of three genera tions of travelers, it trembles trade "the passing of a heavy team, as if it days of usefulness were nearly over and the dr.iw, -when it opens, totter ou its infirm and decaying 1 pier like an •old man with failing 1 limbs. Within a hedge of unkempt Ssl •weirs and fringed with a growth o scraggy spruces, here lies the sleepy island town of Hockamock, cut from "the main by this meandering arm o the sea, and united to it by Tim' bridge. Opposite is Browsie, an an cient and fishy hamlet in whose streets the grass grows now, but the scene o: -stirring business in the days when .Phipps, the Knight of the Spanish Doubloons, was building his ships anc fitting out his brave expeditions. To these shores about three-quarters -of a century ago, when the fishermen .nad farmers of the two old towns were -ia the heyday of their prosperity, came .-a. settler named Tim Stubbs. Where ):e came from nobody knows. His beginning, like his end, is involved in mystery. It is, however, a well-established fact that he built the bridge, the -ivisRseres of the day shaking their ucacls at his venture and rowing that 3ie r.ovcr would get his money back : .;UL it did come back., swelling to a -.ilre-am of silver aud copper coin that made Tim Stubbs the richest man in J3ockamock. When he opened the bridge there wa." STreat rejoicing i n the two towns. I' ".vus such a \vonderful accommodation %o travelers that they willingly paic •:.hc tolls. Some of the fishermen and ••;or..sting skippers grumbled at having Vo lull up and hang oil for Tim to open uis draw, but they soon became accustomed to it and blew their horns aad Konch-shells cheerily, always giving the .alarm just before they rounded the -.sharp bend made by the reach a little below the bridge. As for the steamboats that no;v pass and repass every "day, they had not vexed these waters •v.-hen our story begins. Uut, unluckily for the tollman and a!! who went through his bridge or over it, Tim's nature was as dwarfed and ugly z,r, its frame, and he fed it on nothing Suit his lolls, He lived in -a. little house rrt, the llockamoch cucl of the bridge. Together with his hoards and dingy ycl- I\v--.v uo;, r . When ho stretched out hia V':;'IT. 'or his toll, ho had never a wort o! (greeting for the passer-by, and if one ventured a "good morning," Tim •--ilc.ntly hurried awr.y his money as •Sfc.ough a civil word might break the lijidl that protected it, Old Squire Du:r.:uer, of Hookamock, •liame tearing down the road to the SsrldfTB one dark night, bis horse izi a "Open the gate, Tim, open the gate! Xi's a matter of life asd death!" he There Tim stood as \iurespoiisivc as •.k-nth itself, his dog by his side, the •^-ato shut and barred. "Quick!" roared the squire. "I'm r;f ter the doctor for rny wife—she's like to die." T:m'r. oB'y answer wr.s to hold out f.l::;i hairy hand of his, while tho dog .^•:r,--C: a low g:-o\vl. •'What, do yoa mcau, you knave?"

Coufoundyou. E haven't a penny ir. my breeches! Ti'hoa. boy, steady: I'll pay you to-morrow, man. Open the gate in heaven's I>ut the grim statue did not move sc Krach ;-.s r. finger till the squire, fairly oSre witli indignation, threw down his •wr.tch aud fob for toll. When. ne."t day, he told the villagers of the affair, the warmest indignation •was kindled on both sides of the river, 3>.oi:gh perhaps it never would have turned Tirn's cars but for Auut Han- iiah Eicks. "The scurvy villain!" she muttered, 2ier gray eyes flashing-, "I'll give him a •piece of my mind, if no one else dares to so.y a word!" And away she hob- Med on her crutch down to the bridge —a poor, bent and shriveled old woman, with a face unpleasantly sharp and 3 tonguo that was sharper still. "Ah, Tim," said she, shaking her Jong, bony finger in his face, "ye won't £»e at your tricks much longer!" "What do you mean?" growled Tim. *'I mean robbing- and abusing folks and taking their watches acd fobs •when you've no right, to them—that's ^shtit I mean. 1 * "Get along, you old hag! I won't stand stioh talk!" said Tim. with a ihreatcniag glare. "Hear rue out, miserable man!" Aunt Hannah went ou. "Let nie toll you .•that it's for the Evil One you're doiag -all this! It's for the Evil One you're plundering your neighbors and cheatr Sn.g y-onr own body and soul'" "•You witch!"-Tom screamed, almost 5«side himself with ang«r. "Be off or Tll'have yon hung!" VBahl" retorted the beldame, with a -contemptuous, snap of her fingers. ••"We'll have a free bridge first!" Doubling his fist, Timstarted toward 'her, -while the dog crouched for a aspring. "Boh? 1 • she repeated, standing her ground arilraising her crutch. "Come at TX 5i -T* daie, -both of TtJ" There was a flash in her eye that cowed man and dog 1 and kept them back. "I'm not afraid of ye and cow I've begun I'll finish," she said vo. a higher key. "You're the Evil One's; all— man, dog 1 and money! He'll cotfl& with fire and smoke and claim his own. He'll surprise ye when he comes, and ye can't escape him—and that's the last we shall see of ye." With a queer, chuckling laugh she hobbled offi. Her words must have made a deep impression on Tim, for it is said that he never dared to look her in the face again, but if he saw her coming hurried into his den, calling his dog after him; and so Aunt Hannah, of Jail Ilowsick and Hockamoek, alone had the freedom of his brMge and received no attentions from Scrap. Uut the years rolled by and brought no evil visitation upon the tollman. He grew richer and richer all tbe tin:?, and with his wealth his sullen avoidance of his fellowraen increased. He seemed to regard them all with a hostile suspicion and to have no friends bnt his dog, who daily grew dingier and uglier and mors distrustful. Of what was going on in the \vorld Tim knew nothing and eared no more. A book was not to be seen in his house, and he never read a newspaper. Of railroads and steamboats, which all the world had begun to talk about, he did not even dream. Civilization marched on from one height of progress to another, great inventions and discoveries were followed by those yet more wonderful, but no sound of it came to him. If he had any pleasure besides counting his heaps of money, he found it in annoying the navigators of the reach by obliging them to blow and blow for half an hour at a time before attending to their signals. Often would he keep a skipper waiting until the wine had changed or the tide had turned, and a good day's work was lost, and SO oppressive did his ill-natured tricks become that some of Ills indignant mariners openly threatened to tsar down his bridge. But Tim and his bridge held unmolested sway over tho reach until a certain summer evening in IS—, when just as the shadows were falling the toll- man was startled by a terrific screeching that seemed to come from around the bead. It was ns Joud and piercing as if a.1 the horns and cor:ch shells in tbe Clam river fleet had blown at oacc, and it surprised him into an unwonted alacrity. Leaping out on the bridge he seized his bar and swung open the draw without a moment's delay. The strange noise was heard again, this time nearer and still louder. Never •couldboms arid shells have ijlon-n such a blast as that! Perplexed and .hall frightened, Tim leaned over the side of tiie draw, ivnd, through the fast gathering shadows, looked eagerly down the reach. Suddenly he jumped back, bis eyes bursting from their sockets. With a rush and a roar, a frightful apparition had suddenly turned the bend and was bending for the bridge. It loomed xip in the dim light, huge, uncouth and uncanny, a monster neither of the sea nor of the air, but alive and on fire, breathing out great puffs of vapor, vomiting blotches of smoke and showersof sparks, churning tho waters with its icet and piercing the skies with its voice. As Tim still looked, another cloud of steam hissed from its nostrils and it shrieked again. That was enough! Tim stared no longer. With a loud cry of despair he bounded to the-upper end of the draw, jumped into the water and disappeared. The monster passed through the opened drawbridge with aspnttering, a trembling and a groaning. It lashed the murky waters of the reach high against the piers, frightened the birds from the spruces and sent the cattle snorting and scampering to the ends of the pastures. Then in a moment or two it had vanished, and the face of nature was serene again. The draw still stood open, pointing up and down the river as if to mark the course of the strange visitor. Travelers came .up on both sides, halted and turned back, supposing the interruption to be the latest device of Tim's malice. For two days traffic between the two towns was at a standstill Then some of the Hockamock worthies, after vainly trying to arouse the toll- man, went out in a boat, climbed tro the pier aad swung the draw baclt Travel thereupon resumed its wonted course, and from that day to this Tim's bridge has been free to man and beast. After waiting a due time for Tim to reappear, the selectmen of the town made a thorough search of his house, but no trace of Tim, or his dog, or^ strange to say, of his hags of money, could be found. Jfot even a button, nor a penny piece, cor a bone! Aunt Hannah liicks always claimed with many a chuckle that her prediction had been literally fulfilled; but after she had gone the way of all the prophets, there came to the ears of the towaspeople a rumor that in one of the interior villages of Maine an old man, apparently very poor, had been found dead of starvation and neglect in a wretched hovel, his body guarded by a half-blind, snarling old dog and stretched upon a heap of straw in which were hidden several bags of money, amounting to a wondrous sum. Whether these were the relics of Tim Stubbs or not nobody ever took pains to make sure, though many of the good people of Koswick and Hockamock imoly believed .the bones of the dog and the gold were his. Some of the neighbors were fuHy persuaded that Tim was never seen on earth after he lumped into the reach, and at the present day one opinion has about as many champions as the other in these two old towns.—Lewiston (Me.) Journal. FEELING IN AMPUTATED LIMBS. A. Unique City. The only city in the -world on the line of the equator is Quito, aad there the sun rises and sets at tho .same hour all the yenr round—six o'clock. An Explanation of the "Funny Bone" aad Other Strange Sensations. "How often have we heard a legless or an armless mattj say, as he pointed down to his stump, that he could feel that foot which he lost twenty years ago just as plainly as though it were there now,'' said an anatomist rscently. "The man told you the truth in spite of the seeinin? absurdity of the claim. It arises in this waj': If that part of a divided nerve which is • still connected with the brain be stimulated, the same sensation is perceived as i:i the stimulus were applied to all parts in which the branches of that nerve were distributed before they were cut afi. Everybody has a perfect illustration oi this strange action in that 'funu3 r bane' sensation which wa all h-j.ro felt when a particular stroke on our elbow is given. That queer tingling pain which sxich a blow produces, aud"which appears to have its seat in the inner forearm -,ind hand and in the little arid ring fingers, is owing to tho filaments of the ulnar nerve (•.vhieli passes behind the elbow) being distributed to those parts, and to the sensation being always referred to the outr.ide termination of thai;, filament, no matter where it may be irritated. ".Now, it is, of course, impossible to experiment upon a single nervous filament, lest the accuracy with which the imagined seat of sensation produced- by irritating a bundle of filaments accords with their distribution leaves no doubt of the accuraeir of the following odd truths: The nearer to the brain that the stiomlous of irritation is applied the more extended is the bodily sensation.; hence, in diseases of the spinal cord paia is often felt in all the parts ,supplied with nerves coming off .from the cord below the diseased portion, and. the pain of dividing a nerve is felt over all the parts of which its branches are distributed. This is the circumstance which gave rise to all" the- apparently queer ideas which our friends who have lost a limb entertain as to their still •possessing it. Often so strong is this dohision that they will insist on seeing or touching the vacant, space before being satisfied that it is a mere fancy of their own. For example, the constant cry of a patient who has just had his leg cut oil and while the doctors are dressing the stump above the knee: 'Stop squeezing my knee!' 'You hurt my toes!' and the like. "The reason is that when those filaments of his nerves in his s,tump which are destined for the knee; ovth-j foot below are touched in dressing the amputation, the knee itself or the foot is apparently severely handled to the mind of the patient, and ha suiters in that firm sensation. So deceptive are these sensations that years and years after the loss of a limb, and even, for the rest of their lives, men occasionally endeavor to perform some act with the stump which they were accustomed to do with that part of their body which, they lost. We don't have to lose an arm or a leg to know something of this odd delusion, for we all have felt the stinging sensation of a foot being asleep when the ischiatic nerve has been pressed upon, and much of that peculiar pain called tie dolour'euxisdue to the trunk of some nerve being diseased, and the pain is referred to all the parts to which its filaments are distributed. "All men and animals that are well fed and sheltered have the same perfect, delicate, nervous organization, and the nervous force is merely correlative with the forces engaged in the nutrition of the body. We find light and heat necessary to the production of those materials from which the nervous system is formed. These are correlative with the chemical forces brought into action informing the compounds of our food, such as sugar, starch and protein. When we do not properly assimilate our food and from the effects of sudden shocks, then we pass into that condition known as nervous prostration, and the prostration is complete, indeed; then we have sundry morbid conditions known as. hydrophobia, tetanus, epilepsy and hysteria, which seem to be utterly'beyond the power of men having the strongest wills to overcome or suppress. "While, therefore, we know all about the nerves, delicate and complex as the machinery is, yet it is equally true that we do not know. anything yet of the will that animates them. We can not get hold of it to analyze it, and the more we attempt to define it, to locate it, the more insignificant to us the sum. of all our understanding of ourselves." —Washington Star. DINING AT SEA. Immense Quantities of Yletnsils Keqaired On an Ocean Steamer. Yachting may be pursued chiefly foi pleasure, but incidentally it is for sharpening the appetite. The capacity of the average ocean traveler's stomach is proverbial, and, unless seasickness intervenes, he becomes a gormandizer from the time he leaves shore until he lands on it again. So thoroughly appreciated is this that the steward's department on -pleasure yachis and tho great Atlantic steamers is mule a very important office, and nothing contributes so much to the pleasure of the voyage as a complete and varied larder of the most tempting nature. Social life on yachts centers around the table in the richly upholstered cabin, where the entertainment can be as expensive as the owner desires, and the cost of yachting is often in direct proportion to the amount of money devoted to eating and drinking. 2so less important is the dining-room on board of the first-class ocean steamers, and the four or five meals a day axe indicative of the passengers' marvelous appetites. The dining service is elaborate and costly, surpassing 1 in amount and variety.that of the finest hotels in the world. For a six or eight-day voyage the floating palaces load up with provisions sufficient to support a good- sized city for several days. "Everything is of the finest quality, served in the nost approved style and attraetiva 'orm, making the .pleasures of ou shipboard alluring enouga to elicit praise from the hypercritical epicure. Although the service varies slightly on the different lines, one steamer will generally typify all of the others. • The dishes and the cookery is similar to that found in all the leading hotels in Paris. The German liners give dining services that are not excelled by any, but there is a slight savor of Germany and her people in the various odd compounds and mixtures that daily appear on the table. The English steamers are likewise distinctively English, or American, and the, tables are loaded down with all of the delicacies so much appreciated by the travelers. Most of the large steamers furnish four or five meals a day, and each one is an elaborate affair. To attend to these tables about 100 cooks and stewards are employed, thirty or forty saloon waiters and a dozen or more carvers, dishwashers and stewardesses. The force of men required for the kitchen and dining room on a large ocean steamer is thus much larger than the crews of many ocean ships. Breakfast is'generally served at eight o'clock, luncheon at 12:30, dinner at five and cold meats and salads again at nine p. m. On some of the steamers coffee and rolls are served at six in the morning to iceommodate the;early risers. Between these meals anything can be ordered by applying to the steward, or by liberally tipping the waiters. Drinking is no less important than eating, and the bar is so well patronized in the summer time that an enormous stock must be carried. Buying provisions for one of the large steamers is a work that requires experience, for it is more important than buying for a large hotel The supply must be large enough to last fo; the entire voyage, and often for emergencies when a storm keeps the steamer out from port several days later than usual. The amount of provisions also varies with the number of passengers engaging berths, but as the lists are generally made up -weeks before the steamer sails this is not a disturbing- element in the steward's calculations. One large steamer, in the middle of the traveling season, will generally carry provisions made up about as follows: From fifteen to twenty thousand pounds o: beef, from one to two thousand pounds of corned beef, four or five thousand pounds of mutto.n, several hundred pounds of fresh pork, a dozen barrels .of salt pork, four or five hundred pounds of veal, nearly two thousand chickens, ducks and birds, and various other fresh meats. Pickled meats are no less important, and nearly five hundred cans are stored away in the larder; also, nearly two thousand eggs, two or three hundred barrels of potatoes, one or two hundred barrels of flour, and enough green stuff to stock four or five ordinary grocery stores. Several tons of different kinds o£-fresh and salted fish are carried, and all oi' the minor articles of diet in proportion. Wines, brandies and champagnes are provided in large quantities, and these with mineral waters often serve as the chief drinks for the passengers. Such a partial list of the eatables required for one trip across the ocean gives an idea of the amount consumed by the several hundred passengers. The articles are served up in fine crystal and painted ware. One steamer carries from five to fifteen thousand pieces. The breakage is naturally very large, and it is calculated that on each voyage hundreds or more pieces will be broken through the carelessness of passengers or waiters. The expense of one trip across the Atlantic assumes greater proportions every year for the steamship owners, and this increase is largely due to the better dining service which they endeavor to give to their patrons. The amount of eatables consumed, and damage done ;to dishes and furniture, would • seem greater than the actual price paid for a first-class ticket Nevertheless, despite the great cost and expense, the steamship companies appear to thrive and grow rich off their transatlantic travelers. An idea of the cost-of pleasure yachting may be gathered from these figures, but in the latter the costly drinks are also supplied by the owner, while on the ocean- steamers these are all paid for extra. This item alone on a first- class pleasure yacht often runs up into thousands of dollars.—Detroit Free Press. EXPOSITION PICKINGS. DEXJIAKK has made a world's fair appropriation of 367,000.
